carolina and new york differ? i hope so. but can we do it in a way -- >> can they both be equal? can they both espouse equality if actually in one state you can't get married and in other -- >> he's going to answer this question this term. really that's a basic question. one, is it unconstitutional to prohibit same-sex marriage -- >> what do you think, yes or no? >> what do i think they're going to decide. >> what do you think they should decide. >> i think that marriage should be decided by the states, that means that some states should be able to prohibit same-sex marriage. >> that's the principle of the federalist belief. >> it seems so un-american to me. i'm sorry. but here's a country that stands on the grounds of freedom, democracy and equality and here you are all telling me that's fine so long as you're in the right state. i don't get that. >> i've been waiting to ask you this question. >> go on. >> if it's based on love, can three people love each other? >> can three people love each other? why would you need three people? >> well, is it possible for three people to genuinel

? i talked to a big christi he fan a few months ago, one of his biggest donors and fans in new york. he said, you know, mitt romney looked like the guy who fired you. chris christie looks like you. i mean, not me personally, but people in general. you know, i'm just guessing here, but it's possible for me to imagine in a country where, like, weight loss shows are very popular, that people will identify with him and perhaps if they don't apir to look like him, he is -- >> who among us have not -- >> i think that's a great point, and i also lot of the way he addresses it. i love the way he is, like, yeah, i have a weight problem. i don't know why. i love that attitude, and i think that's the right way to playoff tv. >> i think there's a class bias to this conversation because, let's be honest, it's really a lot of working class and poor people are heavier now. it's because of diet. it's because of conditions in their communities. that's not exactly cris christie's story, but he is kind of a more working class person. he is obviously struggled with this. i think it could make him very

why is washington so partisan? people ask that question. nate civilerly of the "new york times" did a study just out this week showing the makeup o of the house of representativeses in 1992, 103 members electe electeelected from swing districts, but it now there are only 35 such seats, and we have to make it through another eight years essentially of this partisanship. is that the problem? >> look at ohio, just for a minute. they had a race for congress there, like in every other state this fall, they voted about 52-47 republican-democrat for congress women and men. so you would think maybe a if i felt-50sto-up of congress, maybe 60-40. it's 12-3, republican-democrat, because of the way both sides-- >> o'donnell: gerrymandered district. >> and john boehner controls the ohio legislature. so they all kind of reap what they've sowed here. these are almost impossible-to-defeat congressmen in their districts. so some of that is gerrymandering. but i think another thing to remember here we've just been through this sort of six-week, eight-week drill on this fiscal cliff, and most of the c

. they keep on saying we haven't put forward real spending cuts. actually there was a graft in "the new york times" today that showed. they are the same categories, right? there is a little bit of tweaks here and there, there's a few differences, but, you know, we are right there. and on the revenue side there is a difference, in terms of them wanting to preserve tax breaks for folks between 250 and a million that we just can't afford. i mean keep in mind i'm in that income category, i'd love to, now, not pay as much in taxes, but i also think it's the right thing to do for us to make sure that people who have less, people who are working, people who are striving, people who, you know, are hoping for their kids, that they have opportunity. that's what we campaigned about. that's what we talked about. and this is not a situation where i'm unwilling to compromise. this is not a situation where i'm trying to rub their face in anything. i think anybody who looks at this objectively would say that coming off my election, i have met them at least halfway in order to get something done for the coun

like to yield to our distinguished and vice chair, from new york. >> in politics, it is not a >> in politics, it is not a zero sum game. the least, that is my belief. it ought not be. we need to work together. there is no partisan path toward a solution. every solution facing our nation's problems must be done in a bipartisan way. that means that neither side gets 100% of what they are looking to achieve. what we saw last night was really an abdication of the process. the president has been working in good faith with speaker boehner, continues to what to do that. it is my hope we can come back to the table and continue to work with the president to work out a solution. what we have seen is something we have observed from our side of the aisle for the last four years. the republican caucus, whether the minority or majority, refused to work with our side of the aisle. the people of this election spoke otherwise. they want to see us working together. they want to see us lead him to the 113 congress, working in a more bipartisan way. i would like to turn it over to th
